Vasantha Yogananthan, Longing for Love, 2013-18.
Marking the first UK solo presentation of Yogananthan’s work, A Myth of Two Souls (2013-2019) is an ambitious on-going body of work inspired by the Indian legend of The Ramayana. Familiar with the epic fable from a young age, having been read it by his Sri Lankan father, The Ramayana is an epic Indian poem that forms the Hindu Itihasa. Moved by the poem, Yogananthan traces a journey from north to south India, capturing the impact and pervasiveness of this omnipresent cultural myth on everyday Indian life.
